Terracotta thymiaterion (incense burner)

Associated with the Stuttgart Group

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 161

On the shaft, seated Eros. On the top, head of a woman

As with the adjacent thymiaterion in the Gnathian technique (26.60.74), the shape here is strongly articulated, and the decoration combines figural and ornamental motifs. The traditional red-figure painting appears sober indeed compared to the rococo effect of the Gnathian piece.
